    Day 1: Day 1

    Stop At: Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Trevi, 00187 Rome Italy
    Day 1 (4 hours)

    The tour starts with a visit to Ancient Rome’s largest amphitheatre, the Colosseum.  You meet your guide outside and with your reserved tickets go straight inside to explore this magnificent arena.

    You then go outside once more to see the Arch of Constantine and the Roman Forum.  The Forum was the Empire’s political, religious and social hub and had many wonderful buildings and monuments.

    A walk up the Sacred Way brings you to Capitoline Hill and the Vittoriano, one of modern Italy’s most beautiful monuments. 

    The tour continues with a visit to the Trevi Fountain, scene of many a famous movie including Fellini’s La Dolce Vita.  Follow legend by throwing a coin in the fountain and making a wish that some day you will return to Rome! Next on the tour you will see the Parliament Building, the Palace of the Council of Ministers and the Column of Marcus Aurelius.  These magnificent buildings are located in the Government District. Close by is the historic Temple of Hadrian, built by the Emperor Antonius Pius in honour of his predecessor.

    A walk down a narrow avenue brings you to the Pantheon where you can see the tomb of the architect and painter, Raphael.  A little further, by way of the Ancient Baths of Nero we arrive at Piazza Navona to see Bernini’s wonderful Fountain of the Four Rivers.

    This was a great tour, and both guides were very knowledgeable and informative. The first day we toured the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and the Pantheon. 4 hours is insufficient time for all of these stops. Although we walked briskly and didn’t stop

    One the best decision we made was to book a private tour with this company, our guide Francesco was fantastic, very knowledgeable, friendly, personable and funny, he made our day. He was pointing out details that you would never get from a tour with a large group.

    A very well organised tour. The first day was a visit to the Coloseum and it was very easy to find our guide and we were taken straight in. Our guide was very knowledgable, it was then over to the Forum, we would of liked to see Palantine Hill but this was not part of our tour
